This is a painting I did based on a photograph I took in Bordeaux.  When I travel, I love to collect images of the people I see.  I also love to sketch people while sitting in cafes, or in markets, and other interesting places.  

I have been thinking about giving a workshop in Italy where we would have the opportunity to paint some of the local residents who would come and sit for us.  Along with instruction on drawing people in settings where they will be moving, not posing.  Naturally, there will be plenty of time for touring, shopping and let us not forget eating!

I will be putting together a list of interested artists.  I will keep them informed of details of future plans.  If you would be interested in having your name on the list, send me an e-mail at and I will keep you updated.

Oh dear. And I thought this was Santa! An amazing job, Myrna. I wish I could manage that trip to Italy. What an adventure that would be!

Oh wow, this is so artistic and mesmerizing! It's truly an inspirational portrait. I think your workshop would be very well attended!

This is amazing, and so are you. I would love to take a workshop someday. Not sure my budget is ready for Italy though. I'm going to check out your US dates and see if you are ever close enough to Texas for me to get there. I love your work.
